EndPoint Firewall Settings
I have Symantec EndPoint Protection v11.0.6005.562 installed on my computer. I would like to connect to an external USB drive connected to my wireless router on my home network. To connect to the USB drive, I use software provided by D-Link titled SharePort.
With Endpoint Network Threat Protection disabled and with Windows Firewall active, I can connect without any problems. The Windows Firewall shows the following exceptions for the SharePort software:
- Inbound -> UDP -> Local: All Ports, Remote All Ports -> Scope: Any local or remote IP address -> Profiles: Private (home wireless network is recognized as Private network)
- Inbound -> TCP -> Local: All Ports, Remote All Ports -> Scope: Any local or remote IP address -> Profiles: Private (home wireless network is recognized as Private network)
However, once I enable Endpoint Network Threat Protection, I cannot connect to the drive using the SharePort software. I have tried configuring application settings and creating firewall rules in Endpoint to no avail. Even after creating rules or configuring application settings, the connection is still blocked.
So if anyone can help create exceptions in Endpoint similar to those outlined above in Windows Firewall, I would greatly appreciate it.
